Microsoft Was "Surprised" At Overwhelming Negativity Toward Xbox One DRM
Posted on Thursday, September 5 @ 13:55:48 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
Digital marketplaces like Steam and iOS have become more and more popular over the years, and Microsoft was hoping to take a slice of that digital pie with Xbox One. Unfortunately, the vocal community of gamers online weren't to happy about the DRM required to make it a reality.
Speaking to Rev3Games, Albert Penello from Microsoft explained the company's initial plan, admitting he was shocked to find such a massive surge of negativity toward their Steam-inspired model.
Call me crazy, but I'm kind of disappointed Microsoft folded under the pressure. If they hadn't communicated their vision for the platform so poorly, perhaps we'd have a feature-rich Steam competitor this holiday instead of a console that more closely mimics the PS4. Ah well.
